This is me modelling the latest in allotment fashion – hand wellingtons, the stylish and practical alternative to gloves. Not really. This is actually me modelling my new, red Christmas wellingtons and demonstrating how badly I needed them. As you can see, my old wellingtons (the ones I am hilarously wearing on my arms) are in a bit of a state. I am also showing fellow allotmenteers how to wear the season’s hottest look – THREE jackets (because it is FREEZING). Remember to sweep your hair to one side, ladies and men, for added just-stepped-out-of-a-bramble patch chic. I need to look my allotment best at all times because Dan and I never know when we will be called on to do an important media interview about the exciting Can You Dig It? UK tour. Imagine how embarrassed I’d be if I was “papped” coming out of a supermarket looking all glamorous and carrying tinned potatoes. We’re going to be on BBC Radio Somerset this Friday at about 11am-ish so listen out if you’re in that part of the world.
